4 sentenced in Dec. hit-and-run accident

Accident left 19-year-old severely injured

LANCASTER, Wis. - Four individuals have been charged with a Grant County hit-and-run accident last December that left a 19-year-old severely injured.

The sentencing comes after Lancaster teen Jacob Colson was hit by a vehicle and airlifted to UW Hospital for severe leg injuries Dec. 5, and a passerby called 911 and was later found to have fabricated her story.

Daniel Udelhoven, 21, was sentenced earlier in May 31, 2013 to one year in prison followed by three years of supervision after he pleaded guilty to reckless driving causing great bodily harm, according to a Grant County Sheriff's Department statement. Judge Craig Day also ordered him to pay $25,000 in restitution to Colson.

Cheryl Walton, 47, was sentenced to 30 days in jail after she was found to have falsified information in the investigation. She pleaded guilty to three counts of obstructing an officer in December, according to the statement.

Nicole White, 24, also falsified information and was sentenced to 30 days in jail after pleading no contest to one count of obstructing an officer, the statement said.

Autum Elliot, 17, received two days in jail after she pleaded no contest to one count of obstructing an officer for fabrication information about the investigation.
